Sadly, each year in B.C., 67 people die in crashes involving impaired driving. Almost half of those deaths happen during the summer, meanwhile other deaths happen during what should be joyous celebrations during the December holidays.
No matter what time of year, there are many options to get home safely if you’ve had a drink or two. So, whether it’s after work or play, make the smart choice. Remember, the best time to decide how to get home responsibly is before you start drinking.
Police across the province look for impaired drivers at CounterAttack roadchecks during the winter. ICBC supports enforcement activities such as roadchecks to help make our roads safer for everyone.
More information about alcohol impaired driving can be found on the ICBC website.
